NOTES FROM THE CALL:

The PMP examination is based on version 4 of the Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBoK). This month’s PMP Study call continues the focus on the Project Cost Management Knowledge Area. On September 3, 2009, David Radkovich covered a major Tool & Technique called Earned Value Management. From a cost and schedule point-of-view, those are all the formulas used to determine where your project stands and the requirements for completion. In the PMLessonsLearned.com file and podcast archives. You will find that September 3, 2009 session slide set and the corresponding podcast. Look for podcast number 0079.
In this session, we will cover the rest of the Project Cost Management knowledge area as laid out in PMBOK version 4. There are changes in this area. Dana Safford, PMP, will provide insight and practical examples of everything you need to know to building your critical knowledge mass and pass the PMP exam on the first attempt.
